Spiralized Pickled Beets to use as a Garnish and Much More!

Pickled Beets with Vinegar and Spices - Adriana's Best Recipes (2)

Pickling is such an ancient food preservation technique using vinegar and spices so we decided to make spirals of pickled beets to use as a garnish in salads, tacos, and much more. Beets are a very common root in many cuisines. In fact, Mediterranean, Polish, and Mexican cuisines use them in many different applications. Either raw, in juices, soups, salads and as garnishes.

Pickled beets are easy to make and for those that do not enjoy them when trying them, pickled everyone falls in love with the taste. Because the beets have sweet and sour notes and being cut in spirals are so much fun to eat. In Northern Mexican cuisine, we like to use beets and carrots to garnish tacos dorados andtostadasbut you can use this garnish in burgers, grilled meats, or enjoy as a snack.

The pickled beets can be prepared in so many different ways. But this time we made them just with vinegar, pink salt and a dash of cumin. You can purchase a spiralizer to cut the beets but I found them already cut and ready to use at the supermarket. You can opt for buying frozen spiralized beets too.

Sometimes people think pickling is cumbersome and difficult but it is not. Requires very few steps and ingredients. You can enjoy the pickled veggies following day, as this recipe requires overnight pickling inside the fridge for better results. Pickling beets or any other hard veggie is a good way to preserve the harvest and to enjoy veggies in a different way to add pizzaz to our daily meals.

The pickling technique can be used to preserve other veggies such as new petite potatoes, jicama, carrots, sweet peppers, onions, cucumbers, serrano and jalapeño peppers, and cabbage. It is recommended to choose hard veggies for best results as those need to be crisp even after pickling is done to add texture to the dishes we are pairing with.
